    I decided to offer three recipes this week that will satisfactorily cover all the bases.

    Thursday, Aug. 25, 1966

    Charlene Peach, 13, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Peach, was stung three times by bumble bees on the face Tuesday afternoon while gathering weeds for a pet rabbit.

    Mrs. Peach said a swarm of bees was in a stump near the child and she was stung in the corner of her left eye, on the eyelid and on the nose.

  • Do you experience worry, anxiety, fear in your life? Dumb question, right? All I have to do is turn on MSNBC, or Fox News for awhile to see the political scene, storms, flooding, ISIS, and the economy, and I am ready to go out and play in the traffic. It’s enough to make your head explode.
